Why the Combination of Flaxseed and Chia Seed?  To Maximize Your Nutrition with Both

Both flax seeds and chia seeds are an exceptionally well-balanced food, and very popular because of their high nutritional values. Both flax and chia seeds contain a lot of essential nutrients that the body needs to become strong and healthy. These include Omega 3, alpha linolenic acid (ALA), omega-6, linolenic acid (LA), dietary fiber, complete protein, minerals, and vitamins. Both Flax and Chia seeds are gluten-free..

Though flax and chia seeds are similar in a lot of ways, these two seeds are often compared in order to find out which is healthier. One comparison between the two is that flax seeds contain about the same amount of Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid critical for heart health. Adequate Omega-3 EFAs are needed for healthy human living. But there has to be a balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6. We should have more of the Omega 3s than Omega 6s. Nutrition experts say a healthy ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 in a diet ranges between 3:1, but the typical Western diet has a ratio of up to 30X the amount of Omega-6 than Omega-3 (a ratio of 1:15 to 1:30). It is well documented that excessive amounts of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and a very high omega-6/omega-3 ratio, as is found in today’s modern diets, promote many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The reason the balance of omega 6 to omega 3 is so high in the American diet is because our diets are filled with nuts, seeds and oils high in omega-6.

Flax and chia seeds, on the other hand, have about a ratio of 3:1, which means it has three times the amount of Omega-3 than Omega-6 in its structure. By adding flax and chia in your daily diet, you will balance out the ratio of fatty acid intake, leaving you with a healthier nutritional balance for cardiovascular health.

Both flax and chia seeds contain complete protein, with an impressive biological value. Which includes an essential amino acids such as Alanine, Arginine Aspartic acid, Cystine, Glutamic acid, Glycine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine , Proline, Serine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Tyrosine and Valine. These provide a well-balanced mixture of amino acids, including those essential to mankind.

Both Flax and Chia are a great source of minerals includes Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Zinc, Selenium, Manganese and Copper. These minerals support your cells and the structure of your body and help regulate your various body processes, and body’s health.

Flax seed are a great source of vitamins which includes Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Vitamin B-6 and Folate. These vitamins are micronutrient that is essential for the normal functioning of metabolism in the body. Flax seeds are a great source of lignans.
